Just TRADE It!
Tradepal’s Inaugural Earth Day Student Reuse Campaign for 2014
Across the United States, colleges and universities are gearing up this Earth Day to participate in the inaugural Just TRADE It! student reuse campaign. The 4-week campus campaign empowers students to reduce their carbon impact while helping the planet through campus-wide reuse. This unique reuse competition engages members of the campus community to join-in a fun event and to raise their awareness for the value of the many items they already own but no longer need, by providing a seamless way to “Just TRADE It!”.
Keep the money in your pocket and simply list your unused items and watch as offers to swap, barter, and buy your surplus stuff arrive. By the end of the 4-week campaign, you will be surprised by how big of an impact your campus network made from reuse via the Carbon Savings Score … and the financial savings. Just TRADE It! begins on April 4th and ends on May 5th, 2014, so join today!
Why Student REUSE?
Tradepal recognized the tons of surplus items on campuses as students move in/out each semester in combination with the financial burden of education as students purchase books, pay tuition and monthly expenses. Tradepal began offering its’ reuse network technology to 100 campuses while waiving the cost as part of a commitment to action with CGI America.
How it Works?
Simply join Tradepal and your campus network and start listing your items. It only takes 30-seconds to list an item, just type the name and brand in the ‘description’ and our technology will recognize it and offer item suggestions and the picture. Just gather up all the unused stuff that is sitting around such as updated electronics, sports equipment, textbooks, excess household items and accessories. List them on your Tradepal campus network and trade them for items you do need.
Campuses participating in Tradepal’s inaugural Just TRADE It! campaign includes members of student government, student affairs, residence halls, green groups, sustainability officers, faculty and staff. With 18 million students in college, and hundreds of thousands moving annually, it leaves a lot of items that can be traded, given away or sold while saving resources. As many campuses hold annual events where local non-profits collect unwanted items, all items not transacted can be donated. The Just TRADE It! campaign is launching on April 4, 2014 so request your network today.
The Tradepal community managers are here to answer questions, share ideas for promoting your network on campus and update participants with the weekly leaderboard to know your campuses most current standing during the 4-week Just TRADE It! campaign.
